Joanna MarpleIn my 20's, with only my guitar and a rucksack, I wandered the continents, immersing myself in the lives of some wonderful people, projects and stories, which changed the way I view my responsibility to others and this earth. Right now I'm a European transplant in the US who writes books for children and young adults that offer readers mirrors and windows. Stories can help us not only navigate our world but also can connect us to others, and allow us to inspire and help each other. I believe that equity and empathy should be at the core of our actions and words. I am also a school librarian and I get a kick out of book-matchmaking!
